Eye of Horus Megaways plays out over six reels, and has from two to five rows. There are two additional attractions in addition to the Megaways that should get your heart beating faster. First, Horus acts as a wild, replacing any symbol other than the game’s scatter. Additionally, as he lands, he expands and fills an entire reel.
Blueprint have designed an authentic Egyptian-themed game here, but have integrated new elements that have moved the overall appearance and feel up a notch. It’s as good looking as the Legend of Athena slot, and that’s not easy!
The Eye of Horus Megaways slot machine features an ancient dusty pyramid chamber with massive stone pillars looming over the gaming reels. The tone is a warm brown, and the reel’s backdrop is a crumbling Egyptian temple that formerly housed gods and Pharaohs. It’s kind of spooky, but in a good way. Let’s hope there’s some treasure there somewhere.
Eye of Horus Megaway’s minimum and maximum bets range from 0.10 up to 10.00. The game includes a Megaways mechanics, and on any spin, there will be between 12 to 15,625 paylines.
On each reel, between two to five symbols will land and the game tells you at the top of the reels how many Megaways are in play each time you spin. It’s a kind of souped-up version of the Build the Bank slot which also has a variable reel set (but not to this extent).
The maximum payout you can achieve is 10,000x your bet, and for six of a kind of Horus, you will trigger a win worth 20x your bet. For six of a kind, the Jackal pays 4x, the bird 2x the Scarab 1x, and the Ank and the Fans pay out 8x. Six of a kind of any of the card symbols will pay 0.4x.
There is also a handy info button on the reels, so if you want to find out more, give it a click, and all the essential game details are there for you to peruse.
The Eye of Horus Megaways designers has included one main feature, the free spins. However, it comes with a twist plus expanding wilds, which land on reels two to 6 during the base and the bonus game.
Free Games are awarded when three or more temple doorway scatters land.
You will get twelve free spins and if you hit six scatters, you will also trigger an 100x your stake pay-out. The wild symbols can also trigger higher payouts.
Each time a wild lands it shines a light at the top of the reels to remove a lower paying symbol. It then gets upgraded to the next tablet along. As long as you get six wilds during the free spins, you will remove five symbols, and the highest-value symbol will appear more frequently.
This is where the game can really go on a decent run. Free games can be retriggered: one scatter will get you one more free spin.
For two, you get three more free spins, and for three or more, another five free spins. That’s a thumbs up from me as that happend to be one of my favourite features in a slot game.
The Eye of Horus Megaways slot works well on mobile devices and desktops and there is also a free demo game at Wombat Casino once you have signed in.
Be careful with the high volatility in this slot which can mean lean periods, but if you hit those free spins and the tablet upgrade symbols, you should start to enjoy yourself. Get ready to spin and find some of that Egyptian treasure along the way.
Wombat Score: 4.7/5
Another Blueprint classic!
